When I separated my ex was very abusive verbally. Everytime he would call he would insult me and yell and it was very stressful. My good friend who practiced family law years ago said that I didn't have to put up with that and to explain to him that I will only be spoken to with respect and no more abuse and if he continues to talk like that to HANG UP THE PHONE! So ....

I said that ... he kept it up .... and ....

I HUNG UP!!!

I guess after hanging up on him 10 times and then finally telling him that unless he spoke nicely to me he could just deal solely through the lawyers and rack up the legal fees he got the hint .....

JUST HANG UP!

I couldn't speak with my ex either, he seemed to think even after the divorce I still had to do what he said.
We can't email now either though because his email address is top secret so if he wants something he has to go through the kids. They are all adults now too!

My counsellor said the same thing. I said, "Why are you calling me Kim?"

I gave my ex whatever he wanted with a few exceptions (family oil paintings and personal items). He came over one afternoon and indicated what he wanted. When then movers came he got what he wanted along with a few bags of garbage to boot. Several weeks after that he and his g/f broke into the shed and stole the garden tools. I called the police but because I didn't see them actually take them he wasn't charged. The next day a few rakes re-appeared at my back door. My son was still speaking to his father back then and he had identified the yard property at his father's place. Totally petty but it angered me at the time as I was trying to get the house sold and needed some basic yard tools to keep the place maintained. Had my ex simply called or emailed me I would have arranged to give him ALL of the garden supplies after the house was sold.
